100% Chance of Rain

Yes, I rode to work today.

The forecasters said there would be a 100% chance of rain for my morning commute.

But, once again I experienced only a few sprinkles and was treated to another beautiful sunrise.

My rain jacket did come in handy when I walked between the buildings.

And, at lunchtime.

It was a warm rain. It was the type of rain I used to love to play football. The temperature was cool enough to keep one fresh and the mud gave the advantage to a guy with great balance, good quickness, and not outstanding speed.

By afternoon the sky was blue and the sun was waiting for me to get off work.

Yep, the sun is getting closer to being in my eyes on the ride home.

Apparently all this rain has been good for more than mushrooms.

All sorts of things have sprung up out of the ground in front of this house.

I like the guy at the top of the steps.

Every year I see more Halloween decorations. This year I'm noticing a trend toward more scarecrow type figures in folk's yards. Of course, there are no scarecrows in this yard, but I've seen them in others. If an opportunity presents itself this weekend maybe Billie and I will go hunting. I hear in addition to these scarecrows there are spooky flamingos out and about.
  • 69F/21C with a few sprinkles for the ride to work. I wouldn't have needed rain gear.
  • 77F/25C and nothing but blue skies for the home ride.

  1. That's a pretty morning sky.

    Halloween. I like some of it, but the money people waste on that stuff...
